I have to say again how fortunate I have been to work on films that had really amazing leading ladies. Talent, beauty and of enduring importance- truly great people. Jessica Biel on “Elizabethtown” was all that and more. Loved doing her makeup everyday and getting to know her. #micheleburkemakeupartist #micheleburke #burke #mua #elizabethtown #jessicabiel

A makeup artist needs to have a real understanding of color, light and shadow…. Warm and cool. Your not merely a makeup applicator. Your an artist and you need to learn how to think like one and see the world that way. That’s how I see it. #micheleburke #burkemakeup #burke #makeupartist #mu #color #light #shadow #Micheleburkemakeupartist #mulesson101 ⭕️

Top view of my hair design on the film, “Bram Stoker’s Dracula”. Here’s a little known factoid. When Gary Oldman first walked on the set, some of the crew members laughed. They thought he looked like Mickey Mouse! I had a moment of nervousness, actually sheer terror. Deep down I knew that I had nailed it. #franciscoppola and Eiko loved the design. I always will be thankful to #Eikoishioka our costume designer. She tasked me with coming up with an, “East meets West” design. Stuart Artingstall did a masterful job on the wig. #micheleburkemakeupartist #micheleburke #burke #makeup #dracula #howiwork #makeitwork

Absolutely delighted to have been selected for inclusion in Gary and Patricia’s upcoming book about the role and accomplishments of women in the field of makeup effects in all media. In my case it was “beauty and the beast” as I never limited myself to mu fx only. #micheleburke #Micheleburkemakeupartist #mufx #makeupeffects #makeupeffectsartist #women ⭕️

When I received a call from Marie Claire magazine and they me if I thought I could turn Julianna Margulies into a man I just said yes, of course… why not. Where and when. Of course the hairdresser, Darrell Redleaf-Fielder did a great job on the wig. The photo here is a work in progress shot. #micheleburkemakeupartist #burke #micheleburke #thegoodwife #mu #mua #juliannamargulies #sayyes #howiwork #marieclaire

Lost and Found …. At some point along life’s journey you may feel, “lost and then found”. She is and was. #micheleburke_mua #micheleburkemakeupartist #micheleburke_painting #micheleburke #paintingbymicheleburke #painting #art #artfido ⭕️

Your looking a a very rough work in progress makeup. Just playing around with a reporter that wanted to become a wounded warrior ⭕️

Cyrano de Bergerac.. The famous Nose !! Here’s a brief description … As I lived it. No wire and no net below….I have one shot to get this nose right . I boarded an overnite flight to Paris – One meeting with the director and Gerard Depardieu. Using dermawax, cotton and sprit gum I sculpted a nose on Gerard till everyone was satisfied with the size required.
I took a cast of it. Quick trip back to Los Angeles and I ran the noses out of foam in my lab.
Back to Hungary. One day rehearsal…. and then we shoot !!  
The challenge was to make a dense opaque nose look translucent and match the rest of his skin. I accomplished this via the use of different layers of grease, gels and crème paints…. all with a very light touch
